  2. AFFINITY COUPLING OF RECEPTORS ON MICROCHIPS

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    REAGENTS AND REACTION PROCEDURES WILL BE DEVELOPED DURING PHASE I FOR THE COUPLING OF ANTIBODY MOLECULES TO THE ACTIVATED SURFACE OF MICROCHIP CAPACITANCE SENSORS. PROPRIETARY PHOTOAFFINITY REAGENTS WILL BE SYNTHESIZED AND COUPLED TO THE ELECTRODE SURFACE FOR SPECIFIC COVALENT BINDING OF MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY (USING ONE OF THE TWO ANTIBODY BINDING SITES). THIS WILL LEAVE THE REMAINING STABILIZED ANT ...

  3. AN INNOVATIVE METHOD OF TREATING SPENT ORGANIC RESINS CONTAINING RADIONUCLEAR WASTE

    SBC: ChemChar Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF A PROCESS FOR TREATING SPENT ORGANIC RESINS CONTAINING RADIONUCLEAR WASTE. SINCE RESINS ARE HYDROPHILIC, THEY COMPETE WITH CEMENT FOR WATER DURING THE CURING PROCESS. ALSO, THE RESINSHRINKS AND SWELLS BECAUSE OF REABSORPTION OF WATER; THIS RESULTS IN DEFORMATION AND CRACKING OF THE CEMENT/RESIN SOLID. THE PRESENT METHOD WILL ELIMINATE THE ORGANIC COMPONENT ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF THE AERATED FLOW COMBUSTOR FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY, CLEAN COMBUSTION OF COAL

    SBC: Combustion Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE AERATED FLOW COMBUSTOR (AFC) IS A NEW, ADVANCED CONCEPT OF COMBUSTOR DESIGN, APPLICABLE TO THE HIGH EFFICIENCY, CLEAN, DIRECT COMBUSTION OF COAL, COAL SLURRIES, MOST SOLID AND LIQUID FUELS, AND HAZARDOUS WASTES. AFC IS BASED UPON AN ADVANCED, INTEGRATED, INTERDISCIPLINARY COMBINATION OF TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING FLUIDIZED BED COMBUSTION, AERATED FLOW OF SOLIDS, AND CIRCULATION-LOOP GAS-SOLIDS CA ...

  5. A NOVEL ABSORPTION-COGENERATION CYCLE

    SBC: ENERGY CONCEPTS CO., LLC            Topic: N/A

    TYPICALLY, A COGENERATION SYSTEM DESIGNER MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN A RECIPROCATING ENGINE, WHICH YIELDS EXCELLENT ELECTRICAL EFFICIENCY BUT LOW USEFUL THERMAL OUTPUT OR A GASTURBINE, WHICH YIELDS A LARGE THERMAL OUTPUT BUT LESS ELECTRICITY. THE PROPOSED IMPROVEMENT, WHEN APPLIED TO A RECIPROCATING ENGINE COGENERATION SYSTEM, INCREASES THE USEFUL THERMAL OUTPUT BY ABOUT 50% WITHOUT DECREASING THE ELECTR ...

  6. BRAZING OF GRAPHITE AND CARBON COMPOSITES USING THIN FILM METALLIZATION

    SBC: Hittman Materials And            Topic: N/A

    BRAZING GRAPHITE TO GRAPHITE OR TO OTHER MATERIALS IS DIFFICULT SINCE GRAPHITE IS NOT READILY WET BY MOST CONVENTIONAL BRAZE FILLER METALS. BECAUSE THE BONDING MECHANISM DEPENDS ON CARBIDE FORMATION, THE FILLER METALS USED FOR JOINING GRAPHITE TO GRAPHITE OR OTHER METALS MUST CONTAIN AN ELEMENT THAT HAS A STRONG TENDENCY TO FORM CARBIDES WITH THE GRAPHITE. THIS PROJECT INVOLVES BRAZING GRAPHITE AN ...

  7. INSTRUMENTATION FOR AUTOMATED COLONY PROCESSING

    SBC: LARGE SCALE BIOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Department of Energy
  8. AN ADVANCED SENSOR FOR MONITORING SLAGGING AND FOULING IN BLACK LIQUOR BOILERS

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    BLACK LIQUOR RECOVERY BOILERS EMPLOY BLACK LIQUOR AS A PRIMARY FUEL THAT CONTAINS LARGE AMOUNTS OF SODIUM CARBONATE, SODIUM SULFIDE, AND SMALL AMOUNTS OF SODIUM SULFATE. THE FUEL, AS INTRODUCED IN THE BOILER, CONTAINS APPROXIMATELY ONE-THIRD WATER, ONE-THIRD CHEMICALS, AND ONLYONE-THIRD COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS. THE BLACK LIQUOR RECOVERY BOILER IS AN ESSENTIAL STEP OF THE KRAFT PULPING PROCESS FOR PR ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Department of Energy
  9. AN ADVANCED TANDEM-PULSE COAL COMBUSTOR SYSTEM FOR GAS TURBINE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVANCED TANDEM-PULSE COMBUSTION SYSTEM BEING STUDIED FOR DIRECT COAL FIRING IN COMBUSTION GAS TURBINES PROVIDES INCREASED COMBUSTION EFFICIENCY AT SHORTER RESIDENCE TIMES, AS WELL AS A VERY COMPACT OVERALL COMBUSTOR ISLAND SUBSYSTEM FOR SIMULTANEOUS CONTROL OF NO(X),S0(X) PARTICULATE, AND ALKALI EMISSIONS UPSTREAD OF THE TURBINE. THE COMBUSTOR ISLAND TECHNOLOGY CONSISTS OF TANDEM-PULSE COMBUS ...

  10. RADIATION HARD PLASTIC SCINTILLATING OPTICAL FIBER SPINNABLETHERMOPLASTIC POLYORGANOSILOXANES

    SBC: NANOPTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RADIATION HARD PLASTIC SCINTILLATOR FIBERS ARE NEEDED FOR USE IN DETECTORS OF HIGH ENERGY PARTICLES AT THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (SSC). A CLASS OF POLYMERS, POLYORGANOSILOXANES, CAN WITHSTAND RADIATION DOSES UP TO 18 M RAD WITH LITTLE OPTICAL DAMAGE. OTHER OPTICAL POLYMERSDISCOLOR UNDER THESE CONDITIONS. POLYORGANOSILOXANES ARE AVAILABLE COMMERCIALLY AS CROSS-LINKED ELASTOMERS. THEY CANNO ...
